more ECUSA press coverage

No British newspaper reports yet on the bishops’ plan.

Another ENS story not yet noted here is
Bishops repudiate irregular confirmations in Ohio
which AP reported as Episcopal Bishops Rebuke Conservatives.

Other American newspapers:
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Conservative Episcopalians cool to reconciliation plan
Washington Times (Moonie-owned) Oversight plan ‘silly,’ Episcopal priest says
Houston Chronicle Unauthorized service angers church leaders (AP story with local additions)

San Diego Union-Tribune reports on local Episcopal election in light of all this,
Hunting for a healer

Orlando Sentinel reports on national meeting today of Via Media groups, Episcopalians seek middle ground

And the CEN is published, but went to press before any reports had emerged, so their headline is US Bishops pressured to find a compromise. Still it has a few tidbits, such as:

To add to the problems, four bishops - three members of Forward in Faith and one evangelical - have boycotted the meeting in protest to the presence of Gene Robinson while five bishops have refused to stay at the Conference Centre.
Conference organisers scored a spectacular own goal by placing Bishop Bob Duncan, the leader of the dissenting ‘Anglican Communion Network’ in the same Bible study and prayer group as Gene Robinson, causing Bishop Duncan to withdraw.

I thought I’d give the link to an article by Frank Kirkpatrick ofThe Leonard E. Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. I found this link from The Revealer website (which is dedicated to reviewing religion in the media).
It’s so strange, I remember Frank Kirkpatrick so many years ago, when I was a student at the University of Hartford and we both attended Trinity Church in Hartford. I was impressed then, as now, with his thoughtfulness.
